The Property

PREVIOUSLY OFFERED FOR $7.5 MILLION. NOW SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE!  Situated on nearly 200 acres of bucolic countryside just southwest of historic Ligonier, Pennsylvania, this luxurious estate is the property of a lifetime. Cherished and maintained to perfection by the same family for more than thirty years, Woodmere offers spectacular views – and miles of walking trails surrounding the residence from which to enjoy them. With a handsome sandstone exterior and slate roof, the estate has an impressive, old world air; however, the atmosphere of Woodmere is one of relaxed, understated elegance. Equally suited to large family gatherings or charity balls, Woodmere offers +9,300 sf of living space. Main entertaining areas include an elegant living room with dual fireplaces, an expansive dining room/reception hall, inviting, wood-paneled library, and a large recreation/media room. Professional-grade appliances fill the gourmet kitchen and butler’s pantry, which open into an intimate breakfast room. A bright, glassed-in morning room and family room with fireplace offer additional entertaining space, as do the numerous sitting rooms. Several flagstone terraces provide outdoor living and dining spaces as inviting as the interiors.

The master suite at Woodmere is exceptionally appointed, with his-and-hers bedrooms, a shared bath with separate shower and soaking tub, and custom closets as well as a private terrace overlooking the grounds. Four additional en-suite bedrooms (one with its own living room and kitchen) complete the main residence living areas. Outdoors, the rolling hills of Westmoreland county are on display through the manicured trees and lush gardens of the estate. Set apart from the main house are several additional structures, including a 2,900-sf, 5-bedroom guest house, 2-bedroom staff house, manager’s office, and three barns with a combined total of 13,000 sf.

Outdoor amenities abound, and hunting, shooting, hiking and fishing at Woodmere can all be done without stepping foot off of the grounds. A heated dog kennel, shooting range, pheasant pen, and nine stocked fish ponds allow for hours of active enjoyment. While a vegetable garden, late 1800s-style gazebo, unique “Stonehenge” feature constructed from the same sandstone used to build the estate, and a dock on the Property’s main pond (featuring two boat slips!) are available for more relaxed enjoyment of the area’s natural beauty.
